Modest Wedding Gowns With Sleeves
The wedding dress is one of the most important items on a bride’s shopping list. Some brides will desire a glamorous wedding gown, with accessories and intricate designs, but others are likely to wish for a modest and simple wedding dress. But modest and simple doesn’t mean the dress should be plain. A modest wedding dress can be elegant and exquisite making the bride admired and beautiful.
Most modest wedding dresses have sleeves, but since every bride is unique, every dress should fit and represent the future bride. If you are wondering what kind of sleeves you can have, here is a list of some styles of sleeves you can get.
The shortest kind of sleeves is the cap sleeve. They only cover the shoulders and don’t usually go under the arm. The short sleeve comes right after the cap sleeve when talking about the length. These sleeves are the classic choices for spring and summer. Next come the ¾ length sleeves which were mostly popular in the 50s and 90s. Long sleeves will most certainly bring a dramatic look to the bride, plus they are great for winter weddings. These types are the basic kinds of sleeves you can get, but there are others for you to choose from.
There are many va
riations for the short o
r cap sleeves. I am going to name a few of them for you to choose from. The butterfly sleeves are loose and flowing on top of the arm, and do not cover under the arm. The set in sleeves are a type of sleeves that are part of the bodice, meaning that there is no seam to separate them from the rest of the dress. The raglan sleeves are attached to the dress by means of angled seam, and although they are usually seen in sports tops, they can be used successfully in formal wear. The tulip sleeves are wrapped around the arm and then crossed over itself to create a tulip look. The puff short sleeves are fitted at the bottom around the arm with elastic to keep it in place and to create a puff over the shoulder.
There are variations for the long sleeves too. The Juliette is the long version of the puff short sleeves. They have a puff over the shoulder and a long fitted sleeve. They are good for winter weddings. Another kind of long sleeves is the bell sleeve. This type of sleeve flares out toward the wrist. The bishop long sleeves are loose around the sleeve and fit around the cuff. The poet sleeve is a feminine sleeve which is fitted until the elbow and then flares out toward the wrist.
